    I think I posted these once a long time ago at another forum,
    But they are worth another look,

    I have to admit , most of the photos here , I never seen.

    Hope you enjoy looking at these historical photos as much as I did.

    To spend more time on each photo, just left click on the photo when your ready to see next photo.

    How about some old west photos.....

    [​IMG]BILL TILGHMAN
    Shown here in his buffalo hunting days, Bill Tilghman (at left) was approached by Bat Masterson to serve as a deputy sheriff from 1878,
    a job he served admirably until 1884, which earned him the respect to work in various law enforcement jobs for the rest of his life.
    He’s best known for single-handedly capturing Bill Doolin in 1895.
    [​IMG]JOHN SELMAN
    A figure of stealth and violence, John Selman famously killed gunfighters John Wesley Hardin and Bass Outlaw.
    Before Outlaw died in that 1894 gunfight, he did send a bullet to Selman’s leg that led him to use a cane for the rest of his life.

    Very early body armor. I get a kick out of this photo every time I see it.

    This is the destroyer USS Longshaw. My Uncle was killed on this ship when it was hit by shore batteries on Okinawa in WWII. As a child I remember my grandmother speaking of him often. She said she dreamed at night that he came home.

    HECK THOMAS
    Deputy Marshal Heck Thomas’s dogged pursuit of the Dalton Gang may have contributed to the Coffeyville debacle that led to the gang’s demise.

    At least, Wells Fargo believed as much, telling Thomas (seated front row, at left), “We feel that your work, more than anything, brought about the extermination of this gang.”

    The gang members weren’t shy about their fear of this lawdog either, with Emmett Dalton admitting he saw Thomas as his “nemesis.”

    I was born 100 years too late,

    Check them cartridges on his belt, and the size of the reciever on that rifle,
    I'm bettin they're 45-110 or 45-120's

    [​IMG]
    JOE LEFORS
    Joe LeFors made his name as a lawman after he duped a drunken Tom Horn into basically confessing to the murder of teenager Willie Nickell.

    Yet it was his pursuit of Kid Curry, the Sundance Kid and other gang members after a 1900 train robbery in Tipton, Wyoming, that would make Lefors the inspiration for the leader of the so-called “super posse” that tracked the Wild Bunch so tenaciously in 1969’s Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.
